We-All-Scream-for-Ice-Cream2024

Ice cream is said to be the most patriotic food in the US and is considered a national symbol of America. I could write a whole blogpost just on the history of ice cream but I’ll just redirect you to this article on the History of Ice Cream in the US. If you want the cliff notes version, ice cream was a symbol of the US during World War I when sugar was rationed world wide.  “By the time World War II occurred, ice cream had become inseparable from the American way of life, an emblem of American comfort, freedom, and democracy (Siegel, 2021). While the rest of the world banned ice cream as part of their rationing efforts, the US doubled down and built ice cream factories on the front lines to deliver ice cream to allied ships, distributing 135 million pounds of dehydrated ice cream base in 1943 alone. Thanks to President Reagan in 1984, July became National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of July, was proclaimed National Ice Cream Day.  It is your patriotic duty to eat ice cream...CONTINUE READING

Beach-or-Mountains?

A question as old as time … Beach or Mountains?

 

When I was a kid, we had a storybook called “The Flintstones Take a Vacation.”

In the opening scene, Wilma and Fred are discussing whether or not they should go to the beach or to the mountains for their vacation...CONTINUE READING

Puzzle-Library-Follow-Up

Hello there! Last year, I wrote about building (more like mildly altering and refinishing an old wood file cabinet to become) a Hobbit- and Lord-of-the-Rings-themed neighborhood puzzle library. I built a window into the front, woodburned J.R.R. Tolkien quotes around the library, and waterproofed it (I thought).  ...CONTINUE READING

Buzzworthy-Puzzles

When I told people that my next blog would feature bug-themed puzzles, most’s initial reaction was, “Gross! Why?” Is it any wonder with initial reactions like this that there was a reason to declare July 14th National Be Nice To Bugs Day? As a girl who captures and releases spiders when they’re in the house, I thought I’d get on board with the spirit of the day, which encourages people to stop the unnecessary killing of insects, by sharing insect-themed bugs ON my puzzle board this month! ...CONTINUE READING

National Kitten Day

Didn’t I write about kittens, just recently? Well, I think National Kitten Day is the perfect reason to be writing about them again!  Those who read my December blog were introduced to my two current cats, Meeko and Miss Piggy. As much as I love those two troublemakers, this blog won’t be about them. Today you’ll be meeting the cats of my past....CONTINUE READING

Cow-Appreciation-Day-2024

The second Tuesday of July is Cow Appreciation Day, and the best way I know to appreciate these animals, other than eating ice cream, is by doing some puzzles! There’s actually a surprising amount of cow and farm animal puzzles out there, but I knew just where to start. I’ve been eyeing up Cosmoo in 500 pieces from Eurographics for quite a while because it always makes me laugh...CONTINUE READING

Summer-Puzzles-2024

Oowee has it been hot outside! We’re just coming out of a massive heatwave here in New York City. As I’m writing this, last week it was in the 90s for about four days straight, and even though I usually love to walk around the city and explore in the summertime, it was just too darn hot to spend much time outdoors, aside from a few blissful hours I spent with some local friends at a local puzzle swap, which of course was well worth it. Spending some time with a puzzle in the A/C has been the perfect antidote to the sweltering heat, and I’ve got a few recommendations for options that you might enjoy if you’re seeking the same...CONTINUE READING

Once upon a time in a not so far away land, there lived an introverted princess named Princess Puzzles. Princess Puzzles loved telling stories and writing stories, but the one thing she loved even more than that was puzzles. That’s right. Princess Puzzles just adored them. She puzzled day and night and night and day. In fact, Princess Puzzles puzzled so much that the others in the kingdom worried that she might run out of puzzles.
